"Slices cleanly through the dross and hype of todays small wind marketplace! An oasis of honest, well presented information on the small turbines being sold right now!"
"A complete, in depth guide that will show you everything you need to know to successfully generate your own wind power!"
We really had no clue what we were looking for when shopping for our first wind turbine. We knew nothing when it came to wind power. We just listened to what the salesman and the slick brochures said.
We eventually settled for a turbine that boasted a survival wind speed of 120 mph. Nice - so we thought. Our winds rarely gust above 60 mph so we should be good...right?
Well... not exactly.
The turbine failed in ~30 mph winds - a far cry from the 120 mph survival speed advertised. Does that mean the turbine we installed was a piece of junk? Absolutely not! It may work fine for many locations but was not suitable for our harsh, winter winds. We walked blindly into the field of wind power and paid the price - A broken turbine, wasted time, money, and electricity.
We want you to avoid the same mistakes we made. "The Complete Consumers' Guide To Wind Power ebook" sifts through marketing hype to make sure this doesn't happen to you. You will have a greater understanding of how they operate in real life situations - not just what a sales brochure claims.
